  • Global News published this video item, entitled “US Congress prepares for another battle over gun laws in wake of latest mass shootings” – below is their description.

    In the wake of two mass shootings in Georgia and Colorado that left a total of 18 people dead, the battle over gun control has taken centre stage once again in the U.S.

    Some Democrats believe they can get enough Republican votes to pass a bill on background checks. It comes after news the accused gunman in the Atlanta shootings bought his gun the same day after passing an instant background check with no waiting period.

    As Jennifer Johnson reports, while most Republicans are gearing up for a fight, some believe there is room for compromise.
